This first book in the series introduces Matty Graves, midshipman in the early years of the United States Navy. In 1799, the young U.S. Navy faces France in an undeclared Quasi-War for the Caribbean. Matty Graves is caught up in escalating violence as he serves aboard the Rattle-Snake under his drunken cousin, Billy. Matty already knows how to handle the sails and fight a ship. Now, with the sarcastic Lieutenant Peter Wickett as his mentor and nemesis, he faces the ironies of a war where telling friend from foe is no mean trick.

From the Back Cover:

"Broos Campbell brings to his writing a feel for his period and an understanding of naval seamanship and traditions that are not often seen in maritime fiction. His characters are sharp, genuine and fascinating, his plotting fast-paced and authentic. Campbell has done the world of nautical literature a great service, bringing to life this little-know but crucial period in the life of the United States Navy, and doing it with style and authenticity." -James L. Nelson, author of The Only Life That Mattered

"Campbell writes with a vivid immediacy and understated authority . . . His evocation of life aboard a small man-of-war in the young United States Navy during the Quasi-War with France is superb, his characterization is both acute and realistic, his dialogue witty and shrewd. No Quarter is a delight to read and places its author head and shoulders above his American rivals. I look forward to the further adventures of Matty Graves and the enigmatic Mr. Wickett with eager anticipation." -Richard Woodman, author of the Nathaniel Drinkwater series

"Campbell is one of those all-too-rare historical novelists who understands that the real world turns less often on acts of wisdom and courage than it does on folly, incompetence and blind mischance. Refreshingly cynical." -Jonathan Lunn, author of the Killigrew series

From the Inside Flap:

Telling friend from foe is no mean trick . . .

It's 1799 and seventeen-year-old Matty Graves is a midshipman aboard the USS Rattle-Snake. Matty already knows how to fight sea battles and sail the great warships of the U.S. Navy. But serving aboard the Rattle-Snake calls for more than that. Matty's captain is his own cousin Billy. But Billy is a drunk and maybe a coward. Then there's the Rattle-Snake's sarcastic first lieutenant, Peter Wickett. He's more than willing to run the ship-but has he also set his sights on mutiny? Deep in Caribbean waters, Matty faces some tough choices as the Rattle-Snake confronts the English, takes on blood-thirsty pirates and rescues stolen merchant ships from Haitian rebels backed by Napoleon Bonaparte. With Wickett as both his mentor and his nemesis, Matty struggles to decide where his allegiance lies before it is too late.
